I hope it helps some out :-) I mean, When I did this I was just posting and showing my progess in linux ( when isn't big but progess is progress ).
Today I bougth and downloaded a few books
Learn KDE in 24 hours by Sams
Teach yourself Oracle in 21 days
RedHat Linux 7.3 - The Official Red Hat Linux Reference Guide
and teach yourself linux in 24 hours ( like that is going to happen )
and I know the forum is for posting problems but I figure that if a newbie ( like myself ) post his progress then on the board alot of newbies could benafit from it. but this is a forum.
